There has been some discussion about Section 3.8 of AFPUB-2010-v4-005-draft-02:

   "AfriNIC resources are for the AfriNIC geographical region. For each
    allocation or assignment made during the Exhaustion Phase, no more than
    10% of these resources may be used outside of the AfriNIC region, and
    any use outside the AfriNIC region shall be solely in support of
    connectivity back to the AfriNIC region."

There was consensus on that paragraph in Kigali and in 
Johannesburg.  Andrew Alston raised an objection on the clause being 
"unenforceable, disadvantages African companies looking to globally 
expand, and will create serious enforcement and monitoring 
issues".  The impact analysis provided by AfriNIC did not raise any 
enforcement or monitoring issues.

My recommendation is not to revisit that paragraph.

If there are any objections, please post them on this thread.
